Hi

 

Looking at Allergen Management for warehousing.

 

If allergens are sealed and packed, stored at ground level, and a spillage procedure was in place would this satisfy the requirements of BRC storage and distribution. Or is complete dedicated allergen segregation the preferred route to minimize the cross contamination risks in the event of a spillage.

Hi JRayner1

 

:welcome:

Personally I would prefer segregation but your controls will more than likely be deemed sufficient. They should be supported by a hazard and risk analysis.

Relevant parts of the standard:

2 HAZARD AND RISK ANALYSIS
2.7 The company shall identify and record all potential hazards associated with each step of the product flow as identified in clause 2.6. The company shall include consideration of the following types of hazard:
• allergenic materials (e.g. cross-contamination of loose product or outer packaging by allergenic products).


7.4 PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PRODUCT CONTAMINATION RISK
Appropriate facilities and procedures shall be in place to control the risk of physical or chemical contamination of product including allergens.
7.4.3 Where allergenic materials are stored or transported, the potential risk of cross-contamination shall be assessed and any necessary additional spillage controls incorporated. Where allergenic materials are packaged in a format at particular risk of damage (e.g. paper sacks) designated storage areas shall be used to reduce risk of damage and cross-contamination of other products.

 

Kind regards,

 

Tony
